Pacific Birth Collective
Island of Maui
Pacific Birth Collective is hosting Postpartum Doula Trainings, with fifteen scholarships awarded between 2017 through 2019, to create the foundation for our Pilot Postpartum Doula Community Project. This Project is designed to fill a gap in our community, a caring space that was lost when birth moved from “house calls” to the hospital.
Our goal is to improve the safe and successful transition of new families navigating the early postpartum period. Through this pilot project we are offering selected free home visits by certified postpartum Doula's trained in peer to peer breastfeeding counseling, baby wearing as well as cultural and social appropriateness that will reflect our diverse Maui community.
